Next Propeller Anime Club meeting on Sunday, May 8th!

Depending on who you are, either welcome back from Spring break or congrats on your finals! Or perhaps congrats on graduating! Life has changed for quite a few of you but one thing that will never go away is Propeller Anime Club!

With that said, our next meeting will be on Sunday, May 8th at 1:00PM in FS3F-112 at Full Sail University in Building 3F. I've been looking to showing this feature for quite some time!

Our club has a lot of fans of Mamoru Hosoda, myself included. At the beginning of the year, we all enjoyed The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and last year we were thrilled to see his masterpiece Summer Wars.

Before he went to Madhouse, he had a final run at TOEI taking what would become Japan's biggest anime and manga franchise and twisting it to a dark tale of mistrust, failure, and redemption.

Some have come up with the theory that this movie is symbolic of his time at Studio Ghibli when he was the original director of Howl's Moving Castle(before Hayao Miyazaki took over). Either way, it's a dark, fresh take on the pirates from One Piece.

Planned Schedule

1:00PM - Introduction and News
1:15PM - Record of Lodoss War 5 & 6
2:05PM - Gunbuster 5 & 6 (END)
3:10PM - Intermission(This means hang out, get food, etc.)
3:35PM - Durarara! 5 & 6
4:25PM - One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island

Parn has a party formed in Record of Lodoss War and unlike Samurai 7, they will start doing things! The first order of business if for the party to rescue a princess kidnapped years ago, who has now resurfaced as a witch set on killing them!

We'll be finishing Gunbuster this meeting as well. Noriko Takaya has come from being a clumsy ditz to being able to pilot earth's greatest robotic weapon, the Gunbuster. With an alien war underway, will she be able to rise a hero like her father had many years ago? 

After Gunbuster, we'll decide if we want to watch sequel series Diebuster or if a series just as short could take over the next few meetings.

In Durarara!! we saw a dude get uppercut out of his clothes by Shizuo Heiwajima, further showing the incredibly normal Mikado how crazy the city of Ikebukuro can be. Speaking of which, people in Ikebukuro have gone missing and rumors are flying that they are being used as raw materials for experiements!

One Piece: Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island is a self-contained movie that does not fall into the One Piece continuity. You do not have to know much about One Piece or even like the series to enjoy this movie. Just know that several members of the pirate crew led by Monkey D. Luffy are devil fruit users that have special powers but can't swim and that Luffy wants to be the king of the pirates someday.

That's it for now! We hope to see you all this Sunday!
